Research Methods for Solar PV Part I: Materials and Characterisation
9th April 2019
Scarman Conference Centre, University of Warwick
Seventh in a series of annual one-day workshops starting, this year’s event will focus on PV materials and characterisation. Leading researchers will give their specialist ‘must-have’ overviews of key knowledge essential for postgraduates, postdocs and industrial researchers in all kinds of solar PV materials and device research work. Leaders in their fields will explain the basics of inorganic and organic materials properties and handling for PV research, optical characterisation, chemical composition analysis, electron microscope methods and the all-important properties of transparent conducting oxides.

This workshop is open to everyone. It is run by the EPSRC SUPERGEN SuperSolar Hub as part of its UK networking activity. You can join the SuperSolar network for free and get a discount for the course.

The course co-ordinators are Prof. Ken Durose and Dr. Asim Mumtaz, Centre for Doctoral Training in New and Sustainable Photovoltaics (CDT-PV), University of Liverpool.
